Storyline

Mankind's problems are tempting the moon to move away from the planet Earth, but Kaguya, a superhuman spiritualist, is attempting not to let it go off too far. She comes down to Earth from her home in outer space to help solve the relationship problems of people. Her first assignment involves foiling a perfect murder and a bit of gender-bending as she tries to help Tanaka revive the life of his dream lover and get revenge on the killer, which was her ex-girlfriend. The second assignment involves pulling a sexually frustrated teenager's spirit out of a video game after the stress of being dumped forced it outside the body. Written by <skippy16@ix.netcom.com>

witty and inventive
23 March 2000 | by idiotoffSee all my reviews

in its own genre -- hentai -- this is one of the better ones with respect to the plot and dialogue. Quite witty but not very explicit (still better than most). The goddess character is genuinely hot so you'll be glad that she gets it at the end of the episode 2. (there are episodes 1 & 2 on my tape). Refreshingly, not all the erotic scenes are rape and violence, i was glad to find some depictions of consensual sex, which is somehow so rare within the genre.

As usual, get the subtitled version if you want to be on the safe side censorship-wise: dubbed versions tend to suffer more in the cutting room, although i did not check this one specifically. As for quirky japanese voice-overs mentioned in another comment: i didn't notice that, maybe because I like the conventional cheesiness just as some people like Ed Wood's movies. The female voices are high-pitched but what do you expect?

All in all: not as good as La Blue Girl or other genre favorites but near the top. Would really like to see the further episodes (if they in fact exist).
